    What movie/s scared the heck out of you when you were little?

    There are many mistakes made in that aspect. A common one is that punching someone in the jaw will knock them out. It might break your jaw but it won't render you unconscious (unless you hit your head really hard on the ground.) Changing the subject slightly, if WWE was real, there'd be dead...

    What movie/s scared the heck out of you when you were little?

    Mrs MT was creeped out by the Exorcist for a year! I generally avoided scary movies or TV shows when I was a kid and even now don't like them.

    I can’t stand……..

    Thinking of selling the 65 Corvette

    I had a patient who was seeing his dermatologist for follow up of melanoma. The derm commented that Jack had a bit of a sunburn, a no-no for a melanoma survivor. Jack explained that he'd bought a convertible as a midlife crisis toy. He thought of a fling with a much younger woman but his wife...
